    sat radio antenna

    Does anyone know if there is an aftermarket antenna similar to this <click> that work with Sirius sat radio, as well as GPS, Wi-fi, Cellular and PCS. I am wanting to install a Multi-in-one solution to reduce the clutter of antennas on my van. Right now I have a wi-fi, GPS sat, Sirius Sat, CB, radio scanner, AM/FM radio, and PCS antenna. That would remove four antennas, and I am getting an adaptor to run my scanner through my AM/FM antenna.

    I have done internet searches, but I am only finding the shark fin kits for FM antenna, or connecting/hacking into a factory antenna on cars, mostly BMWs.

    Thanks for any help you can give.

    The problem you might run into is the fact that the antennas run off of different frequencies. Sat Radio for example, in my experience i've seen other installers attempt to switch the units of xm for sirrius, or vice versa, without switching the antenna. Afterwards the unit does not get some channels when using the different antenna.

    I have heard of the same problem. I was just wanting less clutter on my van, but I think I will get the antenna from the mp3car.com store and work with what I got. I will still be able to reduce with this antenna. We will see what happens.
